Fast approaching the one-century mark, the author of the classic volume A Coney Island of the Mind—and co-founder of City Lights Bookstore and Press—looks back on the second half of a life well lived. In entries filled with poetic details and deep compassion, Lawrence Ferlinghetti provides firsthand impressions of the 1957 Cuban Revolution in Havana, California's desolate Salton Sea, Voodoo-haunted Haiti, a nightmarish Cold War-era trip on the Trans-Siberian Railroad, and even a brief look back at his D-Day service with the U.S. Navy. Along with his reminiscences of Ezra Pound, Allen Ginsberg, and William S. Burroughs, Ferlinghetti also includes 50 of his free-spirited drawings.
